Dorchester BID

The Business Plan was arrived at after an extensive consultation. Dorchester BID Directors and staff held over 100 face to face meetings with individual businesses. Via an interactive process the DBID website allowed business owners in the BID area not only to suggest projects but also to vote for their favourite projects every month a facility pioneered by and unique to the Dorchester BID. A series of meetings were held including a general public meeting to discuss possible projects followed by three themed public meetings and these were open to all businesses in the BID area and to the general public.

Feedback

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.

I very much enjoyed the events I came to at the Dorchester  Literary festival. It was all very well organised. The sessions on The Seabird's cry, Bee Quest, and The Otter's Tale were brilliant.
